VIDEO: Troy Dando Shark Wrangling


We were fishing in Stephens Passage in the weekend and had a very cheeky shark have a crack at one of our fish.

It then bit the motor on the boat then worked its way alongside the boat biting it as it went.

Although very aggressive for a start the shark was not to phased at us grabbing its fin to say hello and continued to stay in the area until we left.

We think it was a Porbeagle shark, very similar in appearance to a Mako.


A great weekend of fine weather allowed over 50 boats to hit the water up around Durville Island.

Was so good we put the drone up on our trip home to showcase this stunning area. From Stephens Passage at the top of Durville Island to Okiwi Bay.
